    8-yr -old boy chooses Tchaikovsky over Veggie Tales!!

    As soon as he's buckled up and the car is on the road my son asks to listen to Tchaikovsky Discovers America. He loves all the titles in the Classical Kids series, but this is by far his favorite. This is a creative and imaginative escapade set to music. The story accents the music so well that he really ''gets'' the pictures being painted by the music. His favorite piece of music has become the 1812 Overture, which is provides terrific closure for the tape. If you're driving down the road and see a boy waiving his arms enthusiastically as he directs music, you've found my son listening to this tape.
